Green Investment Bank articles

Green Investment Bank - Launched in 2012, the UK's Green Investment Bank mobilises public and private money to support green infrastructure projects that would otherwise struggle to raise capital. Critics have accused the government of limiting the bank's influence by stopping it from borrowing, but it has emerged as a key financer for a raft of clean energy projects, including offshore wind farms, biomass power plants and energy efficiency programmes.
